At least 19 people were injured, CBS2’s Cory James reported Saturday.

Since 12 a.m. Saturday, six shootings happened in the Bronx, and four took place in Brooklyn. There were two more in Queens and one in Manhattan.

One incident happened on Milford Street and Blake Avenue in Brooklyn around 11 a.m.

Surveillance video shows the suspect approach a man washing his tires, pull out a gun and then fire at least one round at a 35-year-old man, hitting him in the neck.

That man was taken to Brooksdale Hospital where he died.

Anyone who has information regarding this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477 or for Spanish, 1-888-577-4782. Tips can also be sent to the NYPDTips Twitter account or submitted online at NYPDCrimeStoppers.com.

Another shooting took place in the Bronx around 3:45 a.m. on Alexander Avenue. A 42-year-old woman was shot in the leg while trying to run away from a gunman.

Police say the woman drove herself to the hospital.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams says this shows we’re in crisis mode all across the city.

“This is extremely alarming and concerning during a time where we are really pushing to end violence in our city and our communities, to have 19 people shot, 13 shootings is something we need take extremely seriously,” Adams said.

Adams says he’s hoping community activists can work in neighborhoods to try to prevent retaliatory shootings.

    Nice work Mayor Deboobio.

  2. Gary Mar says:

    This goes to show that we need the police and when NYC gotten rid of the NYPD’s Anti-Crime Unit, more crime and murders will happen. Defunding the police will not solve anything, it will cause more crime and murders.

  3. mmwilliams says:

    They shouldn’t even bother to investigate the shootings.

  4. CYRUS says:

    Well, it is clear that we certainly should not defund the police. On the contrary, build them up, give them better training, but make sure that they enforce the laws fairly and consistently across all our communities. And our community leaders also need to get a better message out there.

  5. This is why you don’t elect communists.

  6. Joe Banco says:

    that’s what happens when you HATE the police, bringing it on by all the defund nonsense, now there wont be any help when you need it. People are leaving NYC in droves and moving to the suburbs to get away from this crap. They are slowly creating a lawless ghetto in NYC, where no visitors will come and police wont want to enter. YOU are creating it with all the HATE you have, while pointing the finger at everyone else
